The 3D Printing Contest Continues:
Currently accepting submissions for the December 3rd, 2012 deadline.
Enter for a chance to win the $2000 Grand Prize!
Week One 3D Printing Contest Winners:
While the 3D Printing contest continues into the next phase, the first round of design submissions has been selected. We received numerous entries that were wonderful and inspiring, and the judges agreed making their selections was difficult. Without further ado here are this week’s winners:
Bill Murphy – Vibratory Therapy Device
Patients suffering from chronic bronchial and pulmonary conditions are always in need of methods to clear airways. This vibratory therapy device is a simple way for those suffering from conditions such as cystic fibrosis to get relief. By breathing in and out through the device, pulmonary build ups can be broken up and expectorated more easily.
Samuel Bernier – Fanon Lampshade
Shipping and longevity are the two major problems with common lampshades. By creating a 3D-printed lampshade, Samuel has made and “on-demand” product that can be made at home. This eliminates the cost of storing the lampshade in a factory and the chance that it will be destroyed in shipping.
Qiyue Song – Wind Turbine
Qiyue’s design for a wind turbine is a simple five piece construction consisting of a hub, a cap and three blades. With wind turbines becoming a more popular method for generating energy, designing simplicity into their construction is becoming more important. Qiyue’s model does just that.
Thank you again to everyone who submitted models, and remember the contest is far from over. On November 19th, the second week of the contest will come to a close. That means you still have five days to submit your designs and have a chance to have them printed on a Stratasys Mojo and win $100. Head over to our contest page and get your model in. We look forward to seeing all the incredible things that you create.
